I knew Harley Gosney when I was very young. The last tavern he owned was on US 27 between Alexandria and Cold Springs. I thought that was called the Alamo, but I'm not sure. He lived in the brick house next to it toward Cold Springs. He sold it before he died. It's gone now and a convenience store, gas station is there. I visited him with my uncle, Clyde Fisk, who owned the Grants lick Cafe about 8 miles south of Alexandria. I think I was 12 or 13 when we visited him. I'm 62 now.
My mother is a Gosney, but not closely related to Harley.
Harley was a pleasant, persomable, humorous man. My uncle told me he was a great baseball player as a young man. He thought he had played in the majors, but that wasn't true.
